My husband and I had just said to ourselves a few months ago “ok, we are not booking any more trips until the end of the summer” as we have quite a busy travel schedule coming up. This said while we were enjoying a fab trip to Fairmont Heritage in Acapulco (lols). While there a friend mentioned that they had rented a beach house in the Abacos Islands and would we like to come for a week? Where in the heck where the Abacos Islands? Beach House…in February, the middle of what was supposed to be a brutal Canadian winter? SURE!! We are in!! We’ll figure out the details later….
Turns out the Abacos Islands are part of the Bahamas, our winter hasn’t been that bad here in southern Ontario and our hearts were recently crushed. None the less a trip such as this was on our bucket list, today we prepare for Lisa from Pawsitive Wellness Pet Care to stay the week with little Oli. She is Amazing with animals and so great to have someone staying in our house while we are gone. So today will be cleaning, cleaning, cleaning and packing.
Packing a carry on only – YIKES! How will I fit enough clothes in there to cover my “fluffy parts”! Then there are the hair care products, shoes..it might be cold – windy !!! I am feeling STRESSTED about getting ready for a great trip. Did I mention its going to be an adventure getting there? Fly to Nassau, short flight to Marsh Harbour and then – gulp- a 25 minute boat ride to Elbow Cay. Oh yeah…on a small boat cause we will have missed the ferry by 15 minutes. A small boat, over open water….and I get sea sick on small craft. Hope I don’t have to pee cause if I have to go down to a head, I will be screwed. Will toss my cookies everywhere. :( Gotta remember to pack the ole Sea bands.
So dear imaginary readers, cross your fingers for us. No hurling, good weather and time to heal our hearts. Chat from Paradise soon!
